Gehry's See-Through Symphony

Architect Frank Gehry's design for a new concert hall in Miami Beach blends openness with the next-generation Internet.

"New World Symphony's $200 million new home in Miami Beach [is a] a diminutive, Frank Gehry-designed concert hall whose versatility and Internet outreach could resuscitate a languishing concert form...They will all be wired with Internet2, which is 100,000 times faster than the broadband in use today and is now limited to a small number of businesses, universities and government agencies."
